JAXBContext. Marshaller method not found

I have code which works ok on a local eclipse w apache;

import javax.xml.bind.JAXBContext;
import javax.xml.bind.JAXBException;
import javax.xml.bind.Marshaller;

JAXBContext jc = JAXBContext.newInstance(JobList.class);
Marshaller m = jc.createMarshaller();
m.marshal(jobList, new File(JOBFILE));
Compiles in Production, but throws
a method not found exception on
m.marshal(jobList, new File(JOBFILE));

Is this a java version issue between prod and dev envs ?
I do see some APIs for the javax.xml.bind Interface Marshaller that do not include the version accepting a file and not a output stream.


Thanks for the help

Is it safe to , "assume" , that since
public void marshal(Object jaxbElement, File output) is only available since JAXB2.1,
public void marshal(Object jaxbElement, OutputStream os) should work for older versions ?
